One important thing that has provided the mankind with lots of useful materials in over the history is the palm tree. The most important materials that come from the palm tree are coconut oils. Coconut and palm kernel oils were considered very good health oils in Ayurvedic medicine almost 4000 years ago.
The Sanskrit medicine found out that the coconut oils had almost the same health effects like the mothers’s milk. It was thought that the human milk worked as some kind of antibiotic after an eye surgery. But latest research has shown that there is a similarity between coconut oil and human milk: their fat or lipid content.
So believe me that the medium chain fatty acids and monoglycerides found primarily in these two coconut oils and mothers milk have miraculous healing power. Another great advantages of them is that they have many useful properties and no toxicity or bad side effects.
This tropical oils, the coconut oil and the palm kernel oil will be the new oils of the next millennium.
